Underground Spirits brings ‘Cocktails and Dreams’ to Floriade NightFest
Underground Spirits – Canberra’s most awarded spirits brand – is Floriade’s first ever spirits partner, a welcome addition to and partnership with Australia’s biggest celebration of spring with their oh-so refreshing gins and vodkas.
“Underground Spirits will bring a taste of our home-grown Canberran distillery onsite to Floriade. Visitors to Floriade’s NightFest can visit our cool pop-up bar to enjoy pop culture themed cocktails, chatting with the distiller and our team, interactive workshops to learn more about gin, and discover our truly innovative spirits brand – the spirit of Canberra,” said Underground Spirits Founder, Dr Toby Angstmann.
Aptly named with this year’s Floriade theme of Pop Culture in mind, Underground Cocktails and Dreams, will be onsite in the Stage 88 precinct at Floriade for each night of NightFest – Wednesday 26th – Sunday 30th September 2018.
“As NightFest is themed each night to movies, music, party and comedy, visitors to our bar will enjoy cocktails such as Flux Capacitor made with Underground vodka, the Phil Collins, our variation on the Tom Collins made with Underground gin, and The Heckler made with our Shiraz and Pepperberry Gin.
“Coffee lovers can get their fix on music night with the Ziggy Stardust featuring our new Vodka with Cold Brew Coffee, a collaboration with local premium coffee house, Bellerophon Coffee. And over at the new Pialligo Urban Café they can indulge with a Starlight Espresso – our espresso martini on-tap,” continued Toby.
Underground Spirits will also host a range of intimate and interactive cocktail workshops throughout Floriade. Held onsite at The Greenhouse, visitors can meet the Underground Spirits distillers, learn the history of gin, explore Australian botanicals, learn about starting a distillery, find out how to make the perfect Gin & Tonic, discover how to pair gin with food – and enjoy some tastings of course!
